Cara Brookings married her high school sweetheart, but things did not turn out 'happily ever after.'

After three children and a divorce she calls 'terrifying', she eventually found love again, but again, it was not a good situation, he was physically abusive to both her and the children.

When Cara finally found the strength to leave, she left with nothing except her children.

She needed to figure out her next step, and that involved finding a new home for them.

So she had in idea...what if they built their home on their own?

But how do you do that when you know NOTHING about building a house?

Listen to Bill's interview with Cara to find out.
